Every once in a while, one of our staff members graduates and moves onto something bigger. We take pride in giving our staff the tools they need to succeed in new media, so it’s always a bittersweet feeling when someone eventually moves on.
At The Hive has always had a relatively small staff by design to ensure we can provide the attention and guidance our staff needs to blossom.
Needless to say, we're looking to add a few contributors to our staff and we figure there's no better place to look than within our own community. We're proud to be the best Charlotte Hornets blog on the web, and we want your help to make it even better.
You’re reading this, so we know you love the Hornets. There's also a chance you comment on our articles and GameThreads.
Why not channel that passion into great stories for a great platform?
What we're looking for
We're looking for passionate fans interested in sharing their unique perspectives on all things Hornets. That might mean providing game coverage, analyzing trades, working through statistical trends, or even waxing poetic about the culture of Charlotte.
If you're interested in it, we're interested in hearing it.
Our writers generally publish a couple of stories per week, but ensure we work within your schedule. We understand that most people live busy, complicated lives and the last thing we want is for you to treat this like another job you're not fully invested in. We want you to enjoy what you're doing.
You'll work with our fantastic team of editors — Nick, Russell, Chris, and myself — to improve your writing in terms of clarity, quality, and focus. Every article that goes up on At The Hive goes through one of us, and we want nothing more than to help you be the best writer you can be.
Social media specialists
Do you use Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, or Instagram? If your fingers and wrists are arthritic thanks to social media, we want to hear from you.
At The Hive has nearly 7,000 followers on Twitter and over 3,000 followers on Facebook. Each of those followers is a Hornets fan looking for like-minded Hornets fans to chat basketball with. We’re looking for someone to facilitate those conversations through thoughtful comments, prodding questions, and, of course, memes.
That means checking in sporadically throughout the day to see what people are saying and to share your own thoughts about the team. It’s basically the ultimate gig if you’re outgoing and good with social media.
What you need to do
Send an email to j.priemski at gmail dot com that includes a few things you've written (FanPosts and even school assignments are fine) and telling us why you're the right person to join our team. Please include links to your social media accounts.
Easy, right? If you think you can contribute to At The Hive in another way, let us know! We're always looking to add talented individuals to our staff. We love this site and want it to be the best it can be.
Hope to hear from you soon!
